For those of you who do not read my Mom*tog blog I wanted to share this here as well!
I’ve always said I wouldn’t do a workshop until I could figure out a way to make it my own. Different, fun, and inspirational. What better way to make it fun than to pair up with my very good friend Julie Carson from Joy’s Hope? An intro to photography course plus photography related arts and crafts. I am SO excited about Camp Mom*tog!
So, what exactly is Camp Mom*tog? It’s a day camp for moms who want to learn to take control of their cameras and have fun while doing it. It’s for the moms who want to learn how to tap into their creative side and see master crafter Julie Carson at work. And it’s for the mom who wants to get away for a couple of hours and focus on herself, make new friends, and be inspired.
Camp will be held on May 18 and we will be meeting at my studio in beautiful Downtown Fullerton, California. The workshop will last from 12 – 5ish (we will go later if need be) with the photography instruction lasting 2 hours and crafting instruction lasting another 2 hours. We will have a one hour break in between to eat cupcakes and mingle and ask any questions you may have. In order to keep Camp Mom*tog small and intimate there will be a maximum of 12 attendees and groups will be broken down to 6 in order to get the one on one attention from each instructor.
The Intro to Photography course is for those moms who own a DSLR camera (the type of camera where you can change the lens) and who want to learn how to take control of their camera and shoot on manual. I will be explaining aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and how they all relate to one another. We will be reviewing different types of lighting situations. And, lastly, we will go out on a photo safari with a couple of real kid models to put what we’ve learned into practice and earn your photography badge. This photography course is for busy moms who are not planning on starting a photography business, but rather want to learn how to shoot the best images straight from their camera without having to spend lots of time editing. This course will not cover any Photoshop.
To earn your arts and crafts badge, Julie will be instructing you on a fun photography related project that can either be used as props in your shoots or to display your beautiful pictures in your home. Julie knows that any good day involves power tools, fabric, and paint, and this day at camp will have you working with all three. And if you’re scared of glue guns, like I am, she can help you get over that fear!
